Measuring wheels


Precise measuring wheels for demanding length measurement

Our aluminium measuring wheels for encoders are available in several diameters and with different surfaces (cross hatched knurling, smooth, studded, corrugated and with an O-ring). This enables an individual, optimum selection for many surfaces in a wide range of applications. You can find more information on the selection of treads on the respective product pages or write to us at We will be happy to advise you.

From 200 to 500 mm or from 6 inches to 12 inches - or in special sizes - you will find the optimum measuring wheel for your application here. In combination with a rotary encoder and spring arm, our measuring wheels are ideal for belt speed measurements, e.g. for label printing, in packaging and filling processes, in baking and heating ovens or parcel and letter sorting systems.

The ABP measuring wheels are made in Germany and have very good concentricity properties as well as maximum measuring accuracy. In conjunction with our encoder accessories, safe and reliable installation is guaranteed.



Optimum wear values, special materials

An innovative manufacturing process ensures that there are no edges or sticking points on the coatings of the measuring wheels. This will not cause you any problems with solving surfaces. A specially-adapted material mixture also minimises wear. Due to particularly narrow manufacturing tolerances, it can be used in measurement instruments of accuracy class 1. The O-ring measuring wheel offers an alternative when the demands for precision measurements are lower.

Our measuring wheels have optimum wear values under high mechanical stress and are highly resistant to oils, fuels, ozone and other weather influences. The selection of the right surface for your application depends on various factors, e.g. temperature and contact pressure play a role here. If you are have questions to a special application, please do not hesitate to contact us.
